There is something so fun about trolling the aisles of a drugstore looking for low-priced beauty products. It’s a bit like Russian Roulette trying to find something that’s actually good, but since it’s not too hard on the wallet, I don’t mind taking the chance.
The other day I picked up some newbies and I found these three fantastic products. I definitely got lucky — they are my new faves:
Using this Physicians Formula mosaic highlighter as my new go-to face powder. It helps with redness, winter dullness and evens out skin tone with a baby-fine powder that’s not overly matte. The overall effect is brightening.
If you’re anything like me, you’ve tried a gazillion concealers. I’ve tried high-end, low-end and everything I could get my hands on. Most of the time they make me look worse, so I just went without. But this one, I like a lot. The Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser spongy applicator is fool-proof, the formula is light and it doesn’t settle into my wrinkles, making them look worse. It just lightens, covers and easily blends, without making a big announcement that I AM TIRED AND I HAVE CONCEALER ON! Good for pigment spots, dark circles, breakouts, etc.
I’m going to put this jewel in the best supporting beauty product category. While the concealer above, does the heavy lifting, the Maybelline DreamLumi Touch Highlighter makes for a good finishing touch, especially for nighttime makeup. It’s nice in the corners of the eyes to brighten up after a long day. Also, you could try it blended all along the tops of your cheekbones, for a lifting effect and subtle sheen.
It’s funny, as I get older, I’m more interested in having better-looking skin, than wearing colorful lipsticks, blushes or eye shadows. So glad to have found 3 cheap products that work so well.
